Local Residents Benefit from
Cooperation Between Local Businesses
Neighbors helping neighbors is one of the principles on which this country was founded, and cooperation between local businesses in South Jersey sets an example of how this can benefit both the organizations and area residents.
The band of small businesses that is SJ Hot Chefs has been greatly encouraged and supported by two civic-minded small businesses in our community, which in turn benefits many of our residential neighbors through special restaurant promotions and reduce priced meals.
The investment 1st Colonial Community Bank has made in SJ Hot Chefs is what makes our three annual Restaurant Weeks possible, and the Hughes Center served as sponsor of our Spring Restaurant Week.
1st Colonial Community Bank opened its doors in June 2000 and has convenient branches in Collingswood and Westville. It is called “Nice People with Money.” We can attest that they are indeed nice people, and they know how to invest and lend money wisely.
The bank is first and foremost a community bank, so it is certainly well named. 1st Colonial Community Bank has great rates on all savings and loan products it offers to individuals and residents of South Jersey. Loan products include home equity loans, home equity lines of credit, car loans and personal loans.
The Bank’s deposits are insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), and it offers Statement Savings and Certificate of Deposit Accounts so that depositors can grow their money. In addition, NOW Checking and Money Market Accounts enable depositors to write checks while earning interest on the money in the account. Those who want to grow their retirement nest eggs will find competitive rates on IRA Certificates of Deposit.

The sponsor of our Spring Restaurant Week—currently underway—is the Hughes Center, a cosmetic surgery facility and medical spa located on Springdale Road in Cherry Hill.
For those who hope to regain a youthful appearance, the Hughes Center is a superior alternative to costly cosmetic counter products. The skilled medical personnel at the Hughes Center provide a wide variety of services that includes cosmetic surgery, skin care, and hair treatments, among others.
The Hughes Center is named after its founder, Susan M. Hughes, MD, FACS. Dr. Hughes is a pioneer in facial cosmetic surgery and utilizes the most current and effective innovations.
She is Harvard educated and among the most experienced and highly trained facial cosmetic surgeons in New Jersey. She has been recognized as a South Jersey “Top Doc” in Plastic Surgery, and she has consistently been selected by her peers as a “Top Doc” in eyelid plastic surgery and facial cosmetic surgery in Philadelphia Magazine.
Dr. Hughes has taught in the Oculoplastic Department at Wills Eye Hospital for more than 20 years.
To say that she comes from a family of doctors is a gross understatement. Dr. Hughes is the oldest of seven children, all physicians, who followed in the footsteps of their parents, both of whom are doctors.
